    Hi guys. My name is Anna and I'm new here. I have 13 chickens who are 6 months old. I went to let them out to range this morning and found this. Any ideas on what could have caused this? Coccidiosis? Egg bound? [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC.

    You may want to treat for cocci. Treatment is with Corid.

    Dosage is 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon
    Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.

    After they finish treatment offer some poultry vitamins and probiotics/plain yogurt.
